Goodwill’s Coffee & Conversation event series is an opportunity for all in attendance to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of Goodwill’s work in the community and how collective investments and advocacy play a role in building pathways to prosperity for all. 

Each 90-minute, in-person event will engage attendees in thought-provoking discussions grouped in some of Charlotte’s key Diversity, Equity and Inclusion topics to bridge the gap between the community and those who engage with Goodwill through programs and services.  

With a capacity of 25 guests at each bi-monthly event, attendees will be grounded in community issues that will allow for lively, highly engaged group discussion co-created and facilitated by community change catalysts Kellen Nixon and Annetta Foard. Coffee & Conversation is a safe and trusting space for all attendees to lean confidently into their lived experiences and cultural identities. 


With the ultimate goal to connect the community to Goodwill’s shared purpose and mission, the Coffee & Conversation series will explore the following topics: 

  • February 24: Building a Village 
  • April 14: Sustainability 
  • June 9: Equity in the Workplace: Pride Month  
  • August 11: Equity in the Workplace: Black Women’s Equal Pay Day
  • October 13: Careers in Construction  
  • December 8: Gratitude
